You've no way of knowing whether or not I've been listening which means that you've been thrashing me for not accepting. And I'm under no obligation to accept anything just because you, or anyone...

Yeah, asymmetry drives me bonkers. I might get one of those after market decals even though the Nishiki is just my errand bike. Or go with no decals.

In my initial post, I limited the scope of what I'm considering right now to 28C tires that fit the existing bicycle that my wife prefers. I would like to keep the discussion focused on that.
